Support our Heroes

Description

As a result of the aggressive military attack by Azerbaijan along the front line of contact with the Nagorno Karabakh Republic, according to up to date reports, at least 29 Armenian soldiers from the Artsakh Defense Forces and local civilians including a 12-year-old boy have lost their lives and more than 100 people are wounded including two additional children. Our community must mobilize and do what we can to support an immediate cease-fire and support for these Heroes, who have died defending our Nation.

For our part, The Paros Foundation has launched a Hero Support Fund to raise funds and provide them to the families of our deceased Heroes. Our goal is to provide a minimum of $1,000 to every Hero’s family. While these funds will no where near address this tragic loss of life, nor ease the grief of our Hero’s families, it will provide them a bit of relief during these difficult times. As with any of our projects, 100% of your donation will be used to support this project without any administrative costs. Funds will be distributed as quickly as possible to the grieving families of these Heroes.

The Need
Many families have lost family members, either soldier or civilian, to the recent aggressive military attacks by Azerbaijan. While monetary aid will no where near address this tragic loss of life, nor ease the grief of our Hero’s families, it will provide them a bit of relief during these difficult times.
Short Term Impact
In the short term, families who have lost a love one to this Azeri aggression will receive a small family stipend in the amount of $1,000 as support.
Long Term Impact
In the long term, it is important for the Diaspora to develop a fund to support the families of soldiers and civilians that are killed defending our borders.
Sponsors Benefits
Donors will be listed on the Paros Foundation website and in media posts as appropriate.

As a result of the April 2-5, Azeri aggression, more than 56 soldiers and civilians have lost their lives. A very special thank you to Mr. Serj Tankian who has greatly assisted with raising awareness of our efforts to provide each of our Heroes families with $1,000. We will begin distributing funds at the end of this month and 100% of all funds collected will go directly to these families. Thank you to everyone who have made heart felt contributions.

Today the Paros Foundation Team began the distribution of funds to the families of our Heroes. Today we met with and distributed funds to seven families. We will continue meeting with the families and distributing funds over the next several days. Unfortunately, the number of Heroes (soldiers and civilians) continues to rise daily. As we receive confirmation, we will continue to update this page and continue to ask for your support to ensure that we are able to provide funds to each and every family. On behalf of the families and The Paros Foundation, thank you for your support.
